    One member here re-flash his XMP Ram (G. Skill) to run at 3200mhz. He changed all the profile to specs at an ADATA XMP Ram settings.

    Also interesting and I haven't found it mentioned anywhere is that the A51M (at least the one I have) ships with Hynix 2666 CL11 RAM and as we know, runs at 2400... but what no one mentions is its also running at CL17. :|

    That's some slow-ass RAM config.. it could be so much better.

    I also notice that whatever problem the R1 mainboard has, the R2 is fixed.. offering 3200mhz RAM out of the box. I assume its also unlocked to config in the bios.

    The 2 big problems you need to solve are:
    1. A51mR1 Motherboard revision 2.0 (there is a label on this on the motherboard itself)
    2. A laptop or computer that, when starting a Thaiphoon Burner will not report the inaccessibility of recording in RAM profiles.
    If you have solved these two problems, then there is no problem to flash the RAM profile to work on 2800-2900 +
    P.S. It doesn't matter what profile you flash or what timings your RAM supports. BIOS will always run those profiles that were written to it in DELL
